Don't understand GoProblems in 3844

It is about the value of one-space jump, larger monkey jump, and ko threat.


It is too difficult for me to figure them out.
The Qs are:
Would anyone tell me how to justify "one-space jump" is better than "large monkey jump"? (I've read the comment, but still don't understand)

I know how to calcuate the 17 points ko (which black threatens white).

But I don't know what 12 ko points refer to. Where is the ko? Who threatens who? How to calculate?

Also is it true 17 points ko (+ 12 ko) can always justify one-space jump even if the shape/location changes (eg white has more territory inside, or black has more territory on its side)?

And in reality, how often will we use this tactic. It seems it rarely appears. Right?


If you would like to send me something for illustration, please email at
